SARAH PIERCE: Performance and book launch


As a prelude to FTHo's forthcoming exhibition, The Mental Furniture Industry, Sarah Pierce presents the performance Campus, which emerges from Pierce's ongoing interest in the college campus as a space of community predicated on shifting levels of presence and participation.


The performance will be followed by the launch of Sketches of Universal History Compiled from Several Authors by Sarah Pierce an artist's book which presents an interplay of voices, legacies, friendships and influences that make up an art practice. Conceived from a period of collaboration between the artist, and curator and writer Rike Frank, the book contains newly commissioned essays by Melissa Gronlund and Tom Holert.


Sarah's performance will take place in the empty gallery space. The curtains remain as artworks: moving and moveable, structuring space of the exhibition and disappearing into decoration, shifting, pushed aside and blowing in the wind for the duration of the exhibition, The Mental Furniture Industry opening 28 June.


For this version of the performance Campus, Sarah Pierce will open the rehearsal to the public, beginning promptly at 4.30, followed by a book launch at 5.30

Please book a place at info@flattimeho.org.uk

Institutionalised education and standardised pedagogical practices are principal activities of the Mental Furniture Industry* (MFI). Likewise, the tools of this trade - books and language - are the apparatus of learnt knowledge and received opinion.


This exhibition narrates three historic examples of pedagogical radicalism. The Anti-University, The Hornsey Sit-in and Alexander Trocchi’s sigma project. Alongside a small, accessible archive of material from 1964-1968 are selected works produced by the artists and writers involved in the collective activism.


In addition, a number of artists propose contemporary projects of un-learning, obstruction to instruction and anti-knowledge through physical and performative interventions, including Olivia Plender & Patrick Staff, Adelita Husni-Bey & Park McArthur and Sarah Pierce. Jakob Jakobsen will launch his new project, Anti-know.


A publication to accompany the exhibition will be available with contributions from the exhibiting artists plus John Hill, Nina Power and Howard Slater.


*This phrase first appears in the title of John Latham's work MFI Bing (1975) as well as in correspondence dated 21 January 1974, referring to "a mental furniture design project"
